Speed­ing Gregg’s £1k driv­ing fine

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

MASTERCHEF star Gregg Wal­lace has been fined £1,330 and given six points on his li­cence for speed­ing.

The star of BBC’s hit cook­ery show was caught do­ing 82mph in a 50mph zone in his Jaguar XK on April 22.

The for­mer fruit and veg seller, 47, of Seasalter in Whit­stable, Kent, pleaded guilty af­ter be­ing caught by a safety cam­era van.

Katherine Bar­rett, from the Kent and Med­way Safety Cam­era Part­ner­ship said: “On this stretch of road, there were eight deaths be­fore the cam­era was in­stalled and two in the last three years.

“We do not want to catch peo­ple speed­ing, we would like them to drive within the speed lim­its to re­duce crashes and ca­su­al­ties.

“We of­fer Speed Aware­ness cour­ses to driv­ers who are within a cer­tain thresh­old, but ex­ces­sive speed cases such as this are re­ferred to court.”
